I went here before a concert. The food was very good and so was the service. A little on the expensive side but overall a nice place with good food & service

Service is great. The gentleman at the front door who greets all of the guests is the most welcoming person, so kind. The veal dish with porcini mushrooms and truffles is the best veal I’ve ever had. Milk fed, locally sourced veal from Quebec. Just...More

Probably one of the better restaurants in Montreal. BIS offers a good variety of food and the wine list is also extensive. Service is attentive throughout and it is suggested that you make a reservation because it can get quite busy in the evenings.

Supper on friday november 2nd for four adults. 3 course meal. Good food, pasta slightly overcooked, wine too expensive for the quality. Dessert was great. Overall bill of $222 wine included for two is a t’adore overall what was expected.

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young

We spent about $70CDN for dinner for 2, with an 2 entrees and a split appetizer (try the gnudi!) and a glass of wine. So worth it!
